I travel locally throughout the Northwest, nationally, and to far-flung international locales. I have more than 30 years’ writing, editing, and publishing experience in the travel, food and drink, natural health care, medical, and technology fields. When not traveling, I’m active in my community and enjoy hiking, kayaking, yoga, and spending time with friends and family.

My work has appeared in, Northwest Travel and Life (print and online), 1889 magazine (print, digital and online), Upscale Living Magazine (digital and online),,,,, and elsewhere.

I took my first solo trip at 17 years old and have been hooked on travel ever since. I’ve traveled to 22 countries, often enjoying the chance for slow travel.

Originally from Chicago, I’ve also lived in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and Bellingham, Washington. I’m currently based in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
